Joining the Enkindle Village School Learning Community is a big decision. We want to provide you with as much information as possible, in an open and honest way, to help you make the right choice for your child and your family.
Helping you make
a considered choice.
The reality is that being part of an innovative and dynamic school like Enkindle can be challenging for some children and their families. We value flexibility and innovation, and this leads to an ever-changing learning environment. We are dedicated to keeping the impact of these changes to a minimum, but this is not always possible.
Being an Enkindle Parent means supporting us on this ever-changing journey. We are uncompromising on our differences because this is what sets us apart and makes us successful and proud of our school. We ignite a love of learning in our students and challenge well-held viewpoints about what successful education looks like. This can raise difference of opinions and we aim to examine all perspectives so that as a school we can make well informed decisions that we feel best support the philosophy of the school.
Because of this, we make an open request that if ever you are unhappy with a decision made by our school or find anything in this website that you are uncomfortable with, we ask you to take the time to consider if Enkindle is right for you and your child.
We understand and respect the importance of finding the right school for your child and acknowledge that Enkindle is not for everyone. We are passionate about helping you on your journey to find a school that is the right fit and invite you to take our ‘Making a Choice’ quiz and get in touch with any questions you may have.
Our Enrolment Policy
Finding the right school
We look at each student’s application carefully to ensure that they will fit within the Enkindle Village School Educational Model.
We look for evidence of creative interests, selflessness and empathy in future students. Participating in a democratic school which embraces student freedom and choice can be challenging to some students. A history of violence or destructive behaviour may impact an application. If a potential student is struggling with self-regulation they may find our more unstructured environment very difficult to manage and behaviour issues can sometimes worsen. This is the last thing we would want for you or your child. Therefore, it needs to be a well-considered choice to select a school, such as Enkindle, which follows a different path and purpose to traditional schooling and which places students at the centre of all that it does.
